MASON JAR ORGANIZER

This organizer can be used for many options to organize your bathroom or just decorating your home. The lids will come off and in most cases would be left off. I great option is to fill them with potting soil and planting herbs. I think I may do that. I will summarize how I did these.

 

I used a 1×6 pine board and cut them into 2 feet. I stained all of the boards with a stain I had on hand. Because I have used chalk paint on several previous projects I decided I wanted to have some in the linen color. Having the dark stain underneath would help when distressing the chalk paint and give it a little pop after I lightly sanded the surface. I then applied a dark Minwax finish.

I put two hangers on the top edge down 1/2 inch and about three inches from the ends.

cutting-a-hole

I have four hose clamps on each board. The problem I had was to get a hole in them. I don’t have a fancy drill press but I used a Dremel to cut it. My son wanted to help and I gave him this job and I think he did a great. He used a drill bit also.

I measured and marked the spacing of the rings.

screwing-in

I used 3/4 inch wood screws to fasten them on.

To tighten the hose clamps use a straight screw driver. Make sure your jar is placed just under the lid.
